    Not on the same level as you guys but my favourite game I've seen live is Portsmouth 3 -2 vs Tranmere in 2015.

    I drove direct from work in Kent round the m25 and down to Fratton on a Tuesday night to see possibly the worst 70 minutes of football I've ever seen.

    Could not string more than 2 passes together with the ball constantly being passed out of play and I was contemplating life and whether might fall out of the football league.

    Early second half they went 2-0 up and that looked it.

    However on the 76' minute we got a goal back from absolutely nothing, quickly followed by an equaliser on 82' and then a winner on 85th.

    The roar from the crowd was deafening - the loudest atmosphere I've heard.

    Under the lights it was amazing.

    From utter utter utter **** to winning.

    There was absolute no indication the fight back was forthcoming.

    God knows what their fans thought!

    Cup Final against Sunderland last season at Wembley was also excellent.

    Great game, to penalties = lovely.

    With regards to Manchester United, the best game would have to be Bolton 0 - 6 Manchester United in 1996. United were ridiculously good (Scholes came on for Eric and scored 2 within about 5 minutes), it was a cracking, old ground (Burnden Park) and the home fans were very unhappy.

    Last season I went to one of the best games I've seen live, the play off semi-final. Woking 3 - 2 Wealdstone.

    Woking were 2-0 down after about 15 minutes and were still two down with 15 to go having played absolute dog ****. After 44 league games and a play off game it looked like the season was going to end with a humiliating surrender resulting in another season in the National League South which is so **** compared to the National League.

    Woking won 3-2. It was bedlam on the terraces. Nearly 5,000 packed into a small ground like the Kingfield, the atmosphere was incredible.

    I remember the chelses bolton one.
    Was watch World of sport with Dickie Davies ... was 10 or 11 and remember the score keep changing.

    Seen a couple of those with Spurs.
    4-1 down v Villa with 20 minutes left and drew 4 all.
    There was the 4 all v Chelsea that season too...we were 3-1 and 4-3 down and only a brilliant last second save by Cudicini stopped us winning 5-4.

    The 5-1 at WHL was quite good. Tore Andre Flo tore them a new one.

    You forgot the classic FA Cup game against Rochdale:

    <whistle>

    Genuinely one of the most memorable games that I've been to, but largely for the wrong reasons.
    ****ing freezing, ludicrous Wembley weather like being in a snow globe and absolutely farcical VAR.

    United v Barcelona in the 1984 cup winner cup 1/4 final.

    2 nil down from the away leg, we won 3 nil, two goals for Bryan Robson and one by Frank Stapleton. 58, 000 there, Stretford End was absolutely heaving, the most amazing atmosphere ever.
    It's still never been beaten for me.


    Diego Maradona played for Barca, Robbo barely gave him a kick.

    Mine was mid 70's when we won 4-0 at West Ham . Stuck in my mind as much for the unusual day as much as the game oh and the frission of fear when i made the error of starting to laugh at my WHam mate when the 3rd went in and suddenly 50 blokes were staring at me - yep i was in with their fans.
    PS John Lyall didn't seem overjoyed to be sharing the lift with some teenager smelling of Johnnie Walker (thanks Dad for the hip flask ) and Players No 6 <laugh>

    Been a lower league supporter all my life.So many memorable games for various reasons, that i don't really know where to start.

    Remember seeing West Ham when I was nowt more than knee high, and was more in awe of the noise and not seeing a fooking thing but hundreds of very tall people. Floodlit ocassion one evening, and when we scored the noise was something else as a young kid. Eventually pushed my way to the front so I could at least see the pitch!

    Seeing Bobby Charlton as Preston player manager and watching him run through our lads.

    Malcolm Allison, Terry Venables and many I've forgotten. Cystal Palace one Christmas and the roar of a packed crowd and the Eaaaagles.

    Everton in the FA Cup in the mid 80's - The season I think they won it. It was before Hillsborough, and it was a 2nd replay in the Evening, over 17,000 packed into our tiny ground, and honest thoughts at the time of when they going to close the gates - How later life sad events unfolded eh! But anyway back to the footie and Everton finally saw us off, can't remember the score 0-3 or 1-3 something like that, under the much respected Keith Peacock for us.

    Watching the likes of Steve Bruce play for us, having the pleasure of seeing Paulo Gazzaniga start with not a penny to his name.

    I even remember Newcastle United coming to us in the League Cup, cracking goal by them, volleyed into the top corner, can still see it now.

    Old rivalries against Swindon and some near death scenes.

    Vouchers collected at Plymouth for a Man Utd Cup European Cup game, another story.

    Giving my ticket away the day we played the now defucked Hereford United, only for us to be losing with 10 mins to go 2-4 and coming back and winning 5-4.

    Last season I had a ticket for our Cardiff game, but again gave it away as I was poorly and we beat them...gutted to miss it.

    Never forget the Mighty Leeds United coming to our place, we were 3-0 up within 20 mins, it was mental, we held on to win 3-2

    As you can see, I could tell so many stories. But the best, I really don't know, maybe when we lost to Everton, and having opportunity to experience a 17k all standing crowd at our place, the satisfaction knowing we were beaten by the eventual cup winners.

    I'll shut up now.
